On farm conservation of neglected and underutilized species: status, trends and novel approaches to cope with climate change. Proceedings of an international conference, Frankfurt, Germany, 14-16
This publication is the result of the International Conference held in Frankfurt, Germany 14-16 June 2011 organized in the framework of an International UN Project funded by IFAD “Reinforcing the
SALINITY TOLERANCE OF ALTAI WILD RYEGRASS AND OTHER FORAGE GRASSES
TLDR
Tall wheatgrass and Altai wild ryegrass tolerated salinity better than the other grasses and root yield at low levels of salinity exceeded that on the low saline check soil.
A COMPARISON OF METHODS OF EVALUATING RUSSIAN WILD RYEGRASS FOR SEEDLING VIGOR
TLDR
Selecting large-seeded lines and subjecting them to deep seeding in either the greenhouse or field is suggested as a suitable method of incorporating seedling vigor into a breeding program.
EFFECT OF STAGE AND HEIGHT OF CUTTING ON THE DRY MATTER YIELD AND PERSISTENCE OF INTERMEDIATE WHEATGRASS, BROMEGRASS, AND REED CANARYGRASS
TLDR
Intermediate wheatgrass yielded significantly more forage than either bromegrass or reed canarygrass on well-drained, irrigated land, and was less sensitive to variation in cutting height than intermediate wheatgrass or rea...
Performance of some native and introduced grasses in a semiarid region of western Canada.
TLDR
This study supports the belief that most native grasses are shortlived and low-yielding compared to introduced species and that breeders should concentrate their efforts on the introduced species which have an inheritantly higher yield potential.
Effect of Time of Fertilizer Application on the Seed and Forage Yield of Russian Wild Ryegrass.
maximum values for hypanthium glands and plume length but has fewer achenes than cliffrose and all but one of the hybrids shown in the graph. Plant 581 is but moderately glandular, but with respect
Cold tolerance and winter hardiness in Lolium perenne: II. Influence of light and temperature during growth and hardening
TLDR
The present experiments show that the light conditions during the hardening and prehardening periods are also important and provide a useful guide to the pre-treatments necessary to discriminate between varieties for cold tolerance in such a way that the results can be correlated with field performance.
LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF ROW SPACING AND FERTILIZER ON THE PRODUCTIVITY OF RUSSIAN WILD RYEGRASS
TLDR
Increases in precipitation in August and September increased the seed yield of Russian wild ryegrass the following year and significant positive correlations were found between forage yields and precipitation during March, April, May, and the previous September for practically all treatments.
THE PRODUCTIVITY OF INTERMEDIATE WHEATGRASS AS AFFECTED BY INITIAL HARVEST DATES AND RECOVERY PERIODS
The productivity of Agropyron intermedium (Host.) Beauv., as influenced by variation in the date of initial harvest and length of recovery period between cuttings, was studied on irrigated land over
EVALUATION OF FOURTEEN GRASS POPULATIONS AS FORAGE CROPS FOR SOUTHWESTERN SASKATCHEWAN
TLDR
Both Elymus dahuricus and Elymus sibiricus showed good initial production and were short lived, suggesting they might be useful for enhancing the early production from other species sown in widely spaced rows.
